Chelsea Investment Corporation and the County of San Diego have prepared a coordinated outreach program to engage the community and stakeholders in the redevelopment of the County’s former Crime Lab property at 5255 Mt. Etna Drive. This framework synchronizes the engagement process with the development process, allowing for public input to inform each planning task. While Chelsea conducts the engagement process related to the design of the site, the County secured a Community Plan Amendment (CPA) and prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the CPA.

Demoliton is currently underway at the site and ground breaking for construction of the apartments is anticipated to occur in late 2022 with an anticipated construction period of 18-22 months, with a grand opening expected by mid-2024, subject to all applicable discretionary approvals by the City and County. Interest/wait lists for prospective residents will open approximately six months before completion of construction, or early 2024.
